Our school's offer in support of pupils with Special Educational Needs and or Disability (SEND) Information Report

 

Statement of Intent

St Peter’s Primary School is an inclusive school. Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning and provide an environment which prepares all our pupils as confident, happy citizens, irrespective of their individual educational needs. We are a Values-based where we treat each other with mutual respect and work in a climate where openness and inclusion lay the foundations for our values to be built upon.

As a Values-based school, we seek to promote an educational philosophy based on valuing self, others and the environment through, the consideration of an ethical values vocabulary (principles that guide behaviour), as the basis of good educational practice.  It encourages adults to model values and to give time for reflective practices that empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.

 

As part of the 'Children's and families Act 2014' every provider for additional needs is required to give a summary of what it can offer to help support and care for pupils that may require additional support in school. This is known as the 'SEN Information Report'. 

Please click and download the link below for details of what we offer as a school and further details about who best to contact if you have any further queries or questions.
